JAMES PUREFOY JOINS STARZ EPIC SHOW "CAMELOT", JOSEPH FIENNES SAYS HIS MERLIN IS A MIX OF OBI WAN KENOBI AND DONALD RUMSFELD

Since they scored a great success with "Spartacus: Blood and Sand", and their epic mini series "Pillars of the Earth" is going on well currently on programme, Starz is going on with giving us amazing historical shows. I've already written about their plan to do their own take on the famous Arthurian legends in "Camelot", a new historical show which will tell the story of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table, and which is currently being filmed in Ireland.
The show will star Joseph Fiennes (as a "Machiavellian" version of the wizard Merlin, which Fiennes himself has described recently as the mix of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Donald Rumsfeld), Jamie Campbell Bower (as young Arthur), Eva Green (as evilish sorceress Morgana) and uber-lovely Tamsin Egerton (as Guinevere). The interesting update on "Camelot" is that another contestant in our current poll on British gentlemen will appear in the show: James Purefoy will join the cast as the bad guy King Lot. "Camelot's" writer Chris Chibnall has said that he wants to bring us an extremely cinematic and rich Camelot, but according to first rumors, the show will deliver lots of lust as well. The first promo trailer which was recently secretly shown to some critics (but is still not available online) was said to be full of gritty, earthy, violent and sexy scenes.

  2. This sounds quite good.

    I've been pleasantly surprised by the Pillars of the Earth series so far. It's been years since I read the novel but this is pretty accurate as far as I can recall.

    yes, Pillars are quite charming so far, but I always like history so I'm a bit biased :)

    @Avalon
    it probably won't come any time soon.

    @Bryan
    epic rules big time

    @Vics
    the projects I mention often are usually projects I love most so it's not difficult keeping track ... :)

  6. IF it's anywhere as rich as the production for Pillars, it'll be good. I love Eva Green!

  7. I don't have cable and it'll just too long to wait until the dvd comes out. Oh well, why can't James do more feature films?? Sorry, I'm grumpy today :(

    I like Eva ever since Casino Royale, it'd be great to see her as Guinevere. She and Purefoy as a couple would be scorching hot! :)

  10. Sounds promising. I haven't caught any of Pillars yet but it's been getting good reviews. I enjoyed the book years ago.

    so you do agree that I'm basically hotter than all of the stars which are appearing in my news :)))) My readers were able to see dozens of my pictures back before I made this cute animated avatar of mine to give HOLLYWOOD SPY a unique and charming image :) Hope you'll find some hot people here today as well :)


    @Lynda Young
    the book was lovely as well :)

    Eva will not play Guinevere but evil Morgana, and she probably won't have any fling with Purefoy :)

  14. I know, that's why it's too bad she wasn't cast as Guinevere, she'd be perfect in that role.

    3. she truly was the worse part of the show, beside the horrid actor that tried to play king Arthur... but it was just sad, very sad

  15. If Camelot is as good as Starz current mini-series Pillar's of the Earth then I'll enjoy it. And Eva as Morgana is a way better role than Guinevere. It's a perfect role for Eva's classic Gothic look.

  16. @Flixy and Answer
    Flixy, I must agree here with Answer, being extremely cold and expressionless, Eva is much better suited for villain roles, such as crazy and Gothic Morgana, while Guinevere needs a warm, kindred face and subtle physical beauty like in Tamsin Egerton.

  17. I don't like Eva Green in it. She is a man eater. I hate her. She should keep her man eating mitts off Manly King James.

    1. she was overly neurotic in her role, one of the many reasons the show didn't work
